What Is Assault & Battery?

Assault and battery mean two different things, although the terms are often used interchangeably.

  • Assault essentially occurs when one person threatens another person with physical harm either verbally or physically. Regardless of whether the first person follows through on their threat, their threatening actions constitute assault.
  • Battery is similar to assault but differs in the fact that battery includes actual physical harm being inflicted.

The penalties for these types of violent crimes are severe and often result in:

  • Felony convictions
  • Exorbitant fines
  • Extensive prison time

Assault & Battery Penalties in Florida

The penalties for battery and assault can be increased depending on the specific circumstances of the offense. These penalties are increased when the offenses are moved up to either aggravated battery or aggravated assault.

Aggravated battery occurs when the offense results in the permanent disfigurement of the victim or when the act involves the use of a deadly weapon.

Aggravated assault is anytime an assault occurs in conjunction with a felony or when the assault involves the use of a deadly weapon. The penalties for aggravated crimes are much steeper than normal offenses.
